The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

// Good Arguing

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're more interested in meeting at the airport to people watch
than meeting at the bar.
you want to go to where the moon's dropped down to the earth.
you want to drive around the desert doing ethical revivals with me
(whatever that means. but really.)
you think hedonism is dead (maybe you tried it and it just wasn’t
working out) but you like getting extra weird.
but especially if
you want to hear the whole story or want to tell yours.
